Aug 25, 2013 Announcement

Please join us for worship on Sunday, August 25th, at 10:30 a.m. and for coffee and fellowship after the service. Our texts will be Jeremiah 31:13 and Luke 13:10-17. John Adams will play a sermon in music entitled “Songs of Sadness and Dances of Joy.”  The music is from Federico Mompou’s Songs and Dances, numbers 5, 6, 7, and 8.  Mompou composed these pieces over a forty-year period ending in 1972.  Drawing upon melodies from his Catalan youth, he shaped the Songs into predominantly lyrical expressions of sadness, reverence, and quiet joy, while lightening the mood in the Dances with joyous statements of rhythmic vitality.

There will be a prayer meeting after coffee hour this Sunday, August 25th in the Green Room. Jesus said, ‘When two or three are gathered in my name, I am there.” Bring your prayers about whatever joys or concerns you may have on your mind and in your heart. All are welcome.
